If it's not a piece of junk, then why on earth did it stop working for me so prematurely - and with NEW batteries?
Corey..what foods? Dig this. Reynolds doesn't stand by using these bags for other than suck and freeze.
I've 3 times opened a previously shrink wrapped handi-vac bag of cut scallions and resealed them. Still now they are shrink wrapped.
Cheese. I've shrink wrapped a cut cheese block and opened it 3 times and shrunk wrap it back. No leakage.
In fact, Corey, besides storing for longer times (shrimp to go along with steak), my experiences for re using handi-vac bags for refridge are proving to surpass my expectations.
Scallions when re-sealed HOLD their vacuume. Same with cheese.
Reynolds didn't expect refrigerated vacumed bags to hold their seal for veggies. THEY DO FOR A SURPRISINGLY LONG TIME.
Not only do they hold their initial seal, but do so after opening and re-vacuuming.
I still don't understand what your gripe is. What foods are you referring to?
Shrink wraps and re-opens/reseals...re-vacumes a cheese slab and scallions and avocado.
Corey, not saying you are dumb, but either you got a bum unit or you don't know how to use this gadget.
This is from a long time FoodSaver user. Who needs that kinda commercial suction? It's all about the bag and the contents and the air being drawn out. Why have air drawn out to the point it crushes a soda can?
Overkill. FoodSaver can't explain that.
